Let there be no confusion about Keith Olbermann's position on the Los Angeles Clippers following the release of an audio recording purportedly of team owner Donald Sterling making racist remarks.

The ESPN host thinks the Clippers players should refuse to play.

Olbermann made the statement in a series of tweets earlier this weekend, arguing the players are the only ones with the power to force the NBA to act. As such, says Olbermann, the players should "step up" and take action.

In followup tweets, Olbermann went so far as to advocate a broader strike of all the NBA players, though conceded that's "less likely."
